About Trevor

Every musician was first and foremost a fan of music. My love of music began when my mother took me to a performance of Beethoven's fifth symphony when, coincidentally, I was five. From that point, I started fervently listening to my mother's records (those are the huge, black monstrosities t

Blues guitar is such a popular genre for guitar players because it allows you to access your personal creativity on such a deep level. In other words - you can learn to speak your mind and heart through the guitar!

My philosophy in teaching blues guitar is provide a solid "lick vocabulary" from the masters of the style, combined with an in-depth look at the art of improvising. You will learn to develop your own voice through studying and the greats and unlocking your own creative potential.

Hey there! I'm a multi-instrumentalist with a strong foundation in Guitar, Bass, and Drums.

My lessons are curated behind a few things:
-the understanding of music theory (scales, chord progressions, rhythmic structure, song composition etc.)
-student's requests to learn specific songs and creating original song
-having FUN!

Because in my experience, you're not learning if you're not enjoying what you're doing.

After 6 years, of playing drums, I began my time as a guitar player. I grew as a guitar player tremendously fast because of my understanding and practice of rhythm. I began as an acoustic/folk guitarist, progressed into a blues/funk guitarist, and now play mainly jazz and neo-soul. I also am accustomed to teach many other genres. I now write, produce, and perform my own music and stream online.

When you take lessons with me you can expect that the lessons will increase your music theory knowledge, finger/hand dexterity, rhythm, ear training, performance abilities, and if

My daughter went to Kevin for instructions on guitar. She had no experience, no guitar, and we weren’t sure if she’d like it. Kevin gave us affordable suggestions for a guitar to buy, and she has looked forward to his lessons each week. She really wanted to learn how to play an Adele song and after a few weeks she has mastered it. Kevin is personable, reasonable, intelligent, and thoughtful. I’ve been recommending him to our friends who have children that have been considering lessons.

Kevin is great! i’ve been playing drums in bands for 15 years and took a couple lessons with him to tighten some things up! i learned a lot of great things from Kevin. made me a better drummer!

Kevin worked with me on drums for a few months and was incredibly patient with me as he helped breakdown songs bit by bit, was super encouraging along the way, and extremely fun to be around. I couldn't recommend him enough!!

About Greg

For the last thirty years, from the day that I got my first electric as a teenager, to my work today as an acoustic guitarist for the band, Timberwood, and currently as a teacher of more than forty students a week, my life has been devoted to the guitar. I'm an experienced veteran of the meta

My son was given a guitar by a family member and showed variable interest until Greg started to teach him - Greg has woven elements of what my son needs to learn to improve with how these elements are used by some of the biggest and best guitarists ever and really changed practice from being a chore to something that can be fun. This is the way Greg said he would teach and he’s sticking very much to it! A great instructor that my son really enjoys going to - thanks Greg!!
Robert
I was very impressed, satisfied and happy about my guitar lessons with Greg.
I'm German and booked just 5 lessons due to travel reasons. There was very vage input from me to Greg when we started (I always play the same; want to get new ideas; ...). Greg did not just provide a regular standard lesson. He focused and addressed 100%+ my desires and needs. Greg provided me very conrete and great input in several aspects to what I can do to improve my guitar playing. This was very useful to me and enabled me to move my guitar play forward. I highly recommend Greg to anybody.
Janice D.
Greg is a great teacher! In just 4 months, I have learned so much about music theory, basic chords and history of guitar. He packs a lot of info in one lesson. He is patient and encouraging. He has exposed me to many artists who play guitar. He gives me good tips on how to form the chords easier. Greg makes learning to play guitar FUN!

Adam is a great teacher and has a passion for music. He's super friendly and patient. He works well with beginners, creating lessons tailored to your individual goals, and can even work with intermediate level musicians who want to spruce up their sound. I 100% recommend him.
Cyrus
WOW! Adam got me flying on my cherrywood acoustic in no time. He knows so much about different playing styles, and helped me get my sound to where I could make great cover YouTube videos! I owe it all to Adam! He’s got great stories too!
Julian
For years I’d try to pick up my acoustic (it was a gift from my uncle) and toy around with it, even trying lessons on YouTube, but couldn’t get anywhere. After my first 3 sessions with Adam, I immediately knew I’d have the tools to take off on my own if I wanted to. 6 months later I’m playing gigs at local bars! This guy knows his guitars! Super fun and chill personality too!

Do you want to unlock the mysteries of the guitar fretboard? Learn to play songs, improvise for the first time or explore new ideas for improvisation, study rhythmic grooves and learn to keep and feel the beat. Guitar can be a vehicle for your souls' deepest expression and also a form of practicing meditation. I began teaching before I attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. After Berklee, I performed in several bands, toured Europe and worked as a sound engineer for both live and studio settings including several festivals in Costa Rica.. I can help guide you with creating your own sound recordings if desired. Whether you are just getting started or an experienced guitarist looking for some unique perspective I'd love to help you find a new groove! My favorite styles to play are rock, reggae, R&B and the blues but I also play funk, jazz and classical guitar. Drop me a line today!

"I've been taking guitar lessons with Kimberly since the beginning of 2011. At the time I'd had several years of lessons using a traditional method on acoustic guitar and was looking for a teacher who could help me focus on electric blues rock and move me beyond my intermediate skill level.

Kimberly has a real focus on and talent for teaching. My lessons are tailored to meet my interests. A large part of the lesson is devoted to learning her method for blues soloing--at least 5 approaches to improvisation and comping. After several years, I've come to see how these approaches interweave, complement each other and have become an intuitive part of my musical vocabulary.

Also, because I expressed an interest, part of the lesson involves sight reading, learning blues and jazz theory, developing rhythmic playing sense, and learning a few favorite solos. Kimberly has an amazing ability to tab out and teach any song you give her. Which leads to the best part--after 6 months I was invited to play with one of her ensemble classes. While I was absolutely petrified with fear at the beginning, this has turned into one of the highlights of my week every week. It is just downright fun! It's a safe and forgiving environment where you can make mistakes and learn, or try things out that might flop, or turn into something cool. Every teacher and guitar magazine article all point to the need to play with other musicians to develop your skills and this is where Kimberly Allison really delivers. I feel that I could now sit in with other musicians and contribute.

I give my highest recommendation for taking lessons with Kimberly."

"I had been trying to learn the guitar for a while and met several teachers along the way. However it was with Ahmad that I developed the interest and excitement you experience when you play a guitar. Ahmad is the best guitar teacher hands down. In a very short time I have been able to understand not just how to play the guitar but also music in general. Ahmad is a very enthusiastic teacher who keeps the momentum going throughout the session. If you are in the area and want to learn the guitar you should definitely pay Ahmad a visit."

"I have been taking lessons with Eric for almost three years and I would highly recommend him to anyone thinking about taking any kind of music lessons. I initially started with blues guitar lessons because I wanted to be able to play my favorite songs or maybe impress girls. Over the years Eric got me interested in so much more.

I learned music theory, jazz standards, improvisation, fingerstyle techniques, how to play and sing at the same time, and how to write and record my own songs. He inspired me to take on piano as a second instrument, initially through him but eventually through classically trained instructor.

What started as basic guitar lessons for a potential hobby turned into my tiny apartment becoming cluttered with musical instruments and audio recording equipment. For this I only have Eric to thank."
